IT WAS a good night tonight (Tuesday) for the Walton neighbours in Ryman South. Walton & Hersham moved up to second place with a 2-0 home win over Three Bridges while Walton Casuals enjoyed a lone-goal victory at Ramsgate.
Bridges’ previous two away league matches had produced a 4-3 win and a 4-4 draw, but there was to be no similar feast of goals this time. Harold Odametey put Swans ahead on 25 minutes and Graeme Purdy added the second with a 57th-minute penalty.
Former Swan Glenn Stanley was the matchwinner for Casuals at Ramsgate, scoring in the 32nd minute to lift his side to eighth in the table.
Rose gets his reward
SUDBURY'S disappointing start to the Ryman North season continued tonight (Wednesday) when they were unable to hold on to a lead and had to settle for a 1-1 draw at Ilford.
Ramsgate recover from early blow
